    The micro pub you refer to is the Floodgate, sadly it will not be reopening post lockdown ......

    I guess it's pretty impossible to amend the layout there. Maybe one day. :(

    A lot of the local breweries have been brewing throughout the lockdown for their own takeaway sales and to supply pubs doing takeaways. These include Morton, Slaters, Izaak Walton, Lymestone, Titanic, Peakstones, Quartz, Backyard, Blythe, Vine Inn, Burton Town, Heritage & Burton Bridge. Beowulf restarted brewing about 2 weeks ago. Slater's, Lymestone & Titanic pubs should have real ale from the start, and try your local freehouse.

    Can people let me know when they see a pub that has reopened, and any that look to have closed permanently - Floodgate probably won't be the only one.

    Agreed. Trouble is, i'm such an introvert, i'll sit there, soon as someone even smiles an acknowledgement, i'll probably burst into tears and look such a berk.

    We could wear face masks so you can't see us smile?

    That must have been 2016 . I read about the surprise party for @Gramaisc , that I hadn't been invited to , whilst sitting on a balcony in Majorca. I was most upset at the time that I didn't even know about it!
    (Hoping I was just an over-sight when the meet-up was being arranged, rather than intentionally missed off the guest list ....)
    Count me in the next one pleeeease ;)

    I understand there were some security issues and police objections.
